Super League players have taken to social media to share their disbelief of the latest yellow card.
Castleford’s Mahe Fonua has become the latest player to be shown a yellow card as the game continues to crackdown on foul play. The winger was sent for 10 for a late shot against Wigan’s Jai Field at the DW Stadium.
